Neither hot nor cold, but you have to do alot of bike mending to justify shelling out for one of these

..also handy when cleaning your bike, oiling the chain etc.

Anyone doing reasonable miles on a bike will find a work stand invaluable.
#3
Does anyone now if this can be clamped via the seat post rather than the frame?

I'm running a carbon frame and Ive heard stories of these crushing frames.

Thanks

It's says 360 adjustable clamp, so I assume yes.
#5
I bought this sometime ago, it is amazing, great quality, and light as well, it folds down and holds down my 22lb with ease, if you mountain bike and you need to maintain your bike on a weekly bases, this is a must.

Just taken delivery of the stand, and can confirm that it can be clamped via the seat post.

I'm not easily impressed by products, but I can say that the build of this far surpassed my expectations. I would definitely recommend this to anyone (with a bicycle).

great value with the voucher thanks!
#9
added heat but can't see rep any more?oO
#10
Ordered ... been looking for a good deal on one of these for a while - thanks
#11
Good deal.

Some what lost for the justification on shelling out. Anyway serious cyclist does their own maintenance and a workstand makes it a lot easier.
#12
i'm thinking this could very helpful for servicing forks.
i'm also thinking i can't afford it :/ normal price is £64 there so not that huge a saving.
had good service from ribble recently.
#13
nice price
#14
OK - this one is a cheapie for £27.55. It'll be heavier and it doesn't fold up. Any other thoughts?
#15
I bought one of these a few months back and can agree it's great quality and invaluable for the little jobs where you basically need another set of hands. Fair point about £50 still being a fair amount of money, but this is really for the time spending bike enthusiast who works more on bikes. When I looked around at value for money this came in much better than other Park equivalents, etc.
I did check some of the non-folding ones, but came to the conclusion that it would take half of your garage up, plus I've had at least half a dozen people borrow mine as it's so easy to cart around!

Much much better, slightly more but infinitely better, fully adjustable, tool tray and will hold up to 18kg, So will hold a Scott Gambler 10 if you remove the wheels or shave 600g from the bike somehow...

I have this and use it on my F2, F2000 and TCR C3, so none of these weigh anywhere near 18kg!

I ride once a week and have considered these, though still find it a bit much.

Have also thought about making one.

Or something based on a scafolding pole and wooden clamp

@fatreg

Not sure how the stand you've posted is "infinitely better" ! The one at Ribble is fully adjustable etc, all its missing is a tool tray.
FYI, the stand is actually made by Raleigh, and came in Raleigh packaging, and is the same as this one for sale on Amazon, RRP £99.99.

Normal price is £89.99, and even shows as RRP £99.99 on Amazon.

Hey why don't you say the RRP is £129.95? That'll make your deal look even better...

...in other words, ignore RRP - it's just a con to make us think that we're getting a bargain. You should be on the side of the consumer, not the retailer.

Well spotted, the RRP should be £129.99 then ;)

Look on many of the big cycle retailer websites and you'll see that most workstands start at £70ish.

I'm just trying to establish that this stand is a good quality product and not an entry level model.

I got this one with the toolkit before xmas. Cheapish toolkit but worth the extra £39.00 as it has most of the tools you'll need to service your bike. As said before, stand is very good for the money.
#24
thanks skdotcom. constructive comments, as opposed to baseless with no source for comparison glib statements by other posters.
#25
I've got one of the Decathlon stands HERE. A friend has this Ribble stand and paid full whack for it. It's nice enough but to be honest isn't as good as the Decathlon one. I'm quite tall and the Ribble one seems less stable at the height I need my bike to work on it in comfort. The Decathlon one is bigger and doesn't fold down, which isn't a problem for me as the stand holds my bike when not in use also.

That's fine - just do it on its merits, not some fictitious figure designed to dupe.
#27
well im not sure to buy this or not..
#28
This is now only 52.76 with no voucher needed

If it is the same as the Raleigh one then should be idea - orderd!

Lidl has a bike stand at the moment for £30. It has a vertical column, four feet and a thing to stop the handlebars rotating. I assume it's equivalent in function but it's not alloy so is quite heavy.
